TruRoots partners with the good families who farm organically in the high plains of the Andes in Bolivia to produce top-quality quinoa.

The pale ivory seeds cook to translucent little orbs ringed with a tiny white germ thread. This cherished ancient grain is one nature’s most nutritious foods. Sweet and succulent, versatile, healthy, and convenient, TruRoots Organic Quinoa makes it easy to bring a world of wisdom to your meals.

Cultivated for over 5000 years, quinoa was the dietary staple of the Incas, who called it “the mother-grain." To these ancient people, the grain was a sacred life-sustaining food around which they performed reverent rituals. It was a food beyond a food.

Their sense of hidden powers in the ingredient is confirmed by modern nutrition knowledge. Disguised as a grain, quinoa is really a tiny seed related to a family of greens—spinach, chard and beets—but has unusual qualities. Lower in carbohydrates than grains, it contains all the amino acids to make a complete protein. It is also a good source of vitamins and minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium, copper and phosphorous) and contains fiber, antioxidants, and valuable phytonutrients.

Soulful and full of spunk, TruRoots Organic Quinoa has a light, fluffy texture and a delightful slightly nutty flavor and the culinary versatility of rice.

This adaptable and amazing grain can replace rice, barley, bulgur, millet or couscous in recipes and can mingle with a world of spices, herbs, and ingredients. From hot chiles to fragrant basil, fresh or dried fruit, nuts and seeds, garlic, ginger or citrus zest. Try it in pilafs, stuffing, salads, soups, and stews. Let your culinary spirit guide you.

Quinoa is convenient and cooks quickly, in as little as 15 minutes. Extra easy, TruRoots Organic Quinoa is pre-washed, so you don’t need to rinse it before cooking. To enhance its natural flavor, you can dry toast the grain for a minute before adding water.

TruRoots Organic Quinoa brings ancient wisdom and nutrition to life. Connect with kitchen inspiration every day—add quinoa to your plate. Enjoy!
